Chicago Illinois Engagement Session | Brad & Colie!

Magical Chicago City!!!!

I’m so lucky I spent Sunday exploring it with Brad and Colie for their engagement session.

I asked Colie how they met…….Most of my couples meet online, but not these two. They met out “in the wild”

Brad and Colie met in 2007. She likes to tell people that even though she was underage and he doesn’t drink, that we met at a bar. She started working at a pizza restaurant where She saw the cute regular at the bar. Colie had found every reason to make herself present around him. Stole glances across the bar, brought him and his friends their food and kept his iced tea – no lemon or sweetener – flowing. Brad was pretty oblivious to the fact that this girl who was not his waitress was constantly around. It wasn’t until a year later when her manager told him after my shift that She thought he was cute and had a crush on him. He then finally asked me out!

Christmas is my favorite time of year!!
So I was over the moon excited when I found out how Brad proposed to Colie.

Brad and Colie were both studying and took our exams in the first week of December 2017. They decided to celebrate having a life again, if only for a month, with a nice dinner downtown and partaking in some Christmas activities. When they got to our hotel room there was a Christmas tree with some presents on the table. Colie thought it was adorable and mentioned to Brad that the hotel really goes all out for Christmas. She walked past the Christmas display to check out the beautiful view they had. That’s when Brad grabbed a present and brought it to her, informing Colie that he got her a Christmas present. As stubborn as she is , I pouted and told him that they agreed not to do presents this year as we were traveling later. Brad insisted that she open it . When she did there was another box inside. In that box was another box. And in that box was a ring box!

As they say the best things in life we wait for!!!!

They are both so excited that they can now call each other “fiance” instead of “boyfriend/girlfriend” – which they did for over 9 years! Colie told me being each other’s fiance feels like they further prove their commitment to one another. The most exciting thing about being engaged is the that we get to be each others’ forever. It brings a new joy to their lives as they think and plan for not only our wedding and for our future.

I’m eagerly counting down the days till their 2019 wedding in Sedona!

The views are going to be breathtaking.

Congratulations! Enjoy the sneak peek

Bozeman Montana Wedding | 1915 Barn | M&J

Where to begin!!!!!


It holds a special place in my heart since I grew up there.

When Mary & Jarad asked me to photograph their wedding I jumped with excitement.

I haven’t been home in 20 years.

They decided to say I do at 1915 Barn in front of the highlight mountain range.

Their day was gorgeous; beautiful cloud coverage with hints of sun bursting through.

Surrounded by their closes childhood friends, military buddies, and loving family.

They are so blessed to have the love and support of everyone.

It was magical watching their first dance as husband and wife under the Montana stars……….

Thank you for letting me be a part of this special moment.

Congratulations Jarad & Mary!!!!!

Phoenix Fire Department Engagement Session | L&E

There is nothing more exciting than a client who has a cool job!!!!
When I found out Lauren’s fiancé is a firefighter I pretty much told him I was coming to his fire house for cute photos of the two of them.

In my defense we will be doing a winter engagement session with their pups.

I feel like it was a good negotiation for both parties involved!!!!!

Loving, I mean shout from the top of a building or fire ladder that I’m so over the moon excited about this session.

L&E are smoking hot and their love is on fire!!!!

I had such a fantastic time.

I still can’t believe Lauren hopped in Emmanuel’s fire gear!

I would of been dying from a heat stroke.

Seriously, thank you for rocking the session and climbing the ladder, even though Lauren is afraid of heights.

I swear she would do anything for her man!!!!!!

Enjoy the sneak peek!!!

Recently I posted a contest on my business facebook page.

“Win a free lifestyle session”

No posing, raw, unedited, real life moments when the camera isn’t on.

Lindsey was one of my winners.

I arrived at 8am and her little ones were already on their daily adventures.

I love they chose to have me document them in their new home. Literally just moved in and boxes every where!!!

The house is still brand new to them.

A cute little toddler size doll house they haven’t explored, chickens left behind from previous owners,  a tire swing that will bring many years of laughter.

I had the honor to capture their first few memories in their new home.

Thank you for inviting me in your home and letting me follow your inquisitive little one.


Open. close, open, closeSomeone loves dogs already What do you mean its not my birthday!!
